Defination of a PUPPY MILL.......

It was the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council that in fact DID have a definition of Puppy Mills. They state in one of their previous resports:
The definition of a puppy mill is paramount in evaluating regulatory mechanisms appropriate to address the issue. Puppy Mills are best defined as breeders who do one or more of the following:
a) Fail to follow acceptable standards of breeding
b) Fail to provide veterinary care and husbandry
c) Fail to provide socialization
d) Fail to provide safe housing
e) Fail to maintain sanitary facilities
f) Fail to transport in humane and safe manner, or
g) Knowingly breed adult dogs with hereditary or genetic defects
